on my mind

on my mind: off-white

This end-of-summer look makes me want to plan one last weekend getaway to the beach, just in time for layers. My packing essentials: monochromatic silk PJ shorts, a chunky turtleneck and a woolen overcoat. 

Aussie designer Anna Quan is best known for her extreme, and sometimes monogrammed, cuffs and sleeves. This fall I'm on the hunt for the perfect white button down, and the Anne shirt might be the one. And given my recent name change, I'm eager to use my married initials ('BF') on just about anything. 

I'm not shy when it comes to winter whites, but right now I'm really into cream colored alternatives. Not only are they more flattering on the leg, but they offset a monochromatic white look quite well. This pair from Levi's are ideal (not to mention, affordable) for the cooler months ahead.
